This is the greatest game I've ever played. It was a good step forward from X-Wing (which is the second best game I've ever played), adding in more spacecraft (friend and foe), more weapons, better targeting systems with a great subplot. Replayable due to all the secret missions, secondary and tertiary targets, as well as the ability to try and take out other targets like enemy platforms and capital ships. Was even more fun when played onto a twelve foot screen in a dark. It is very unfortunate that Lucasarts have not done future similar games (X wing vs Tie Fighter that cam later was no where near as good, and unfortunately I never got my hands on X Wing Alliance) or re-released for XP.
